Tracey Billham - MBACP (Accred) Reg. Counselling for Individuals and Couples
Thank you you for viewing my page. I have been working as counsellor and psychotherapist for fourteen years.
I offer support to couples and individuals.
If you are struggling with your relationship I can help you.
I offer a safe non judgmental quiet environment, where we can talk through your issues, problems and any concerns that you may have.
These may include things like anxiety, self esteem, self worth, confidence, loss, maybe you are looking for an understanding of what causes your views or your partners views. We can become frustrated or angry when we are not understood or heard by our partner. I offer an opportunity for change, growth and help with moving forward. For some people moving forward can be extremely frightening, this is very normal and I work to help provide a better understanding for you to choose how to make changes for your future.
Other issues clients bring can be things like trust, communication, loss, direction, expectations, not feeling understood or respected, affairs, sex, alcohol, confusion, gambling and many other issues. I work with heterosexual and same sex couples.
Counselling can help us to make sense of your thoughts and feelings and it offers a space for you to be heard, if you come together with your partner it can also help them understand what life is like for you, equally it can help you understand your partner. The aim can be to find harmony together or to develop an amicable relationship to help with separation. It may be that you would prefer to attend without your partner or your partner will not come to counselling, relationship counselling can still be useful and beneficial even when you attend individually.
Clients do not always know at the beginning of the counselling what their goals might be, we can explore to find an achievable outcome.
My role is to explore the issues with you and to listen and hear what you are thinking and feeling and to help you find and make positive changes. Often clients have a feeling of being stuck and need help and support with moving forward.
I also work with individual clients who present a very varied and wide range of issues. These can include problems such as bereavement, anxiety, worry, self worth, confidence, feeling alone which can be overwhelming and block us from seeing a clear direction, future or outcome. Talking together through these issues will enable change and happiness.
